Hey Alexis, would you happen to know if some of your fellow culinary arts students whom may be interested and qualified to make ravioli to my specifications? I am looking for a bit of help or at least to begin creating somewhat of a database for potential raviolimakers or future raviolimakers, any suggestions would be appreciated, JSS.
